ALWAYS- SUNSET ON THIRD STREET has won countless awards for the first release in 2005 and its
second release surpassed the box office success of the original in 2007. This third installment, recorded
No1 in box office and brought 1.5 million people in Japan for the first 3 weeks, follows the lives of
residents of a Tokyo neighborhood taking place back in 1964. It vividly evokes the vitality of the times by
interspersing nostalgic CG recreations of the Tokyo Olympics, the bullet train soon after it went into
operation, and more.
With Tokyo preparing to host the Olympics, buildings and highways are being constructed at a
feverish pace, and excitement fills the air. Amidst all the change and commotion, the people of Third
Street continue to carry on with their lives, as colorful and vibrant as ever.
